Quite nice

Not extra tidy but it was off season. No litter. No bothersome venders. Just a mile of white sand and a chilly swim!!

Perfect for a morning swim, not a wild landscape, but perfectly nice if you're in the area and are looking for somewhere quieter than Sanxenxo.

This beautiful beach is breathtaking. The water is so amazing it looks like it's gold flakes in it. The sans is white and really smooth. It also has a little restaurant which is nice. Notice that you only can pay cash.

Service was good. Lots of seafood but it also has meat options. They were very accommodating with kids. Excellent view of the ocean that was a plus! Me encantó!

Great beach, especially during the week - on weekends it can be a bit crowded. Clean, white sand. The bar at the beach is great and the people who run it are wonderful. Plenty of hammocks, chairs, umbrellas to rent, as well as paddle boats.

This is a beautiful beach which is maintained every day to look perfectly pristine with golden sand. It is perfect for a daily stroll or power walk...or just a relaxing sunbathe

Really over crowded in August but lovely the rest of the year, white sand and blue sea. In the summer there is always an open "chiringito" to have a drink or something to eat.
